Nanzen-ji Temple, Kyoto

Nanzen-Ji in Kyoto, also called Zuiryusan,is one of the most well-known Rinzai Zen temples in Japan. Emperor Kameyama loved this beautiful place so much that in 1264 he built his detached palace here. A characteristic of the history of this temple is that its abbot was always chosen as the best Rinzai Zen Master in each period. The foliage viewing in this temple is indeed breathtaking.
